  2. The best piece of advice you’ve ever been given? “Keep your chin up, smile and honestly – who cares what others think?”
  3. What is your hidden talent?  “I (like to think I) can sing.”  PHR Ambassador Madison Tong riding Flame
  4. What do you like most about our brand? “The PHR products are so stylish and fit so well. They are so comfortable too!”
  5. How do you manage your nerves before competing?  “I take a deep breath, clear my mind of negative thoughts and assure myself that whatever happens, I will have tried my best. I also find it key to have faith that my horse will look after me.”
  6. When you were 5, you were pretty sure you’d be a… “Magician” when you grew up.
  7. How do you define success? “When the people I love most are proud and I am well and truly satisfied with what I have achieved.”
  8. What is the most played song on your iPhone? “Sweet but Psycho – Ava Max.” Petite Horse & Rider WA Ambassador Madison Tong
  9. What is your favourite part about working with PHR? “The whole team and the other ambassadors are so lovely and nice – being exposed to the behind-the-scenes is so enlightening and its so rewarding when other people discover the brand and love it so much – it’s honestly just the best feeling.”
  10. What is your most exhilarating riding moment? “Going fast and clear in a speed round or jump off.”
  11. What chore do you absolutely hate doing? “Laundry.”

She was the first pony I leased and loved throwing tantrums – rearing up, bucking and dropping her shoulder to charge at the gate as well as refusing to ever turn in the direction I asked her to. That being said, she is an absolute jumping diva, easily clearing metre fences when she decided to cooperate, and overall taught me almost everything I know.”

7.    What is your greatest riding achievement to date? “My greatest riding achievement to date would have to be training Matilda.

Took a while but she ended up being the quietest most talented little galloway I ever had!”

8.    If you could witness any historical event, what would you want to see? “Ending of world hunger. World peace.“

18.  What is the best book you have ever read? “I love the hunger games series.”

19.  Which is the most challenging horse you’ve ridden, and why? “Definitely Matilda. She was so sensitive. She trained me to always think about my actions. She would let me know if I wasn’t doing it right that’s for sure.”

Emily is our Junior Ambassador from the Hills District in NSW who says that eventing is her absolute passion.

 

  1. You’re happiest when… I have just finished a clear cross country run. There is honestly no better feeling!”
  2. Where is the best place you’ve travelled to and why? I have been to quite a few countries but New Zealand is definitely where I feel most at home away from home. I’m not really sure why, I think it might be the awesome cold weather or the picturesque landscape, but I absolutely love it.”
  3. What is the most important thing you have learned in the last five years? Not to get caught up in other people’s dramas because 'if everyone minded their own business, the world would go around a great deal faster than it does' - Lewis Carroll”
  4. What is your favourite part about working with PHR? Absolutely how supportive and caring the PHR team is. It definitely feels like a family.”
  5. What is your hidden talent? I always win something from chocolate machines.”  PHR Ambassador Emily Hankins with her horse Simba
  6. Which is the most challenging horse you’ve ridden, and why? “My horse Simba was definitely the biggest challenge I have overcome with my riding. When I first got him I had only ridden school masters, so moving on to a strong willed horse who only did as much work as he felt like was definitely a shock. It took us a year to get to a point where we could go out to events without him rearing, bucking, bolting or dropping and rolling me off. We have been together for over 6 years now, and I am so proud of how far we have come. He is honestly my heart horse and I don’t know where I would be as a rider without him.”
  7. If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? I would love to learn another language.”
  8. What’s your most memorable facepalm moment? I was on an agriculture camp and it had been raining, and my friend very seriously asked me what mud was. So I told her it was dirt mixed with water, and she was honestly surprised.”
  9. What do you like most about our brand? I absolutely love how stylish yet comfortable the clothing is. It is so awesome to have competition clothes that are comfortable and turn heads.”
  10. What gets you out of bed in the morning? My horse whinnying because he is hungry.” Eventing is Emily's absolute passion
  11. When you were 5, you were pretty sure you'd be a “vet” when you grew up. “My mum is a vet and I have always loved animals, but I have grown away from the idea.”
  12. Where do you hope to be with your riding 10 years from now? “I would love to be continuing my way up the grades in eventing, as well as training brumbies as pony club mounts and low level eventers for young riders looking to step up from ponies but not quite ready for thoroughbreds or warmbloods.”
  13. What is the best book you have ever read? Either Salem’s Lot by Stephen King or Demon Seed by Dean Koontz. I really love a bit of sci-fi horror.“
  14. How do you define success? When you finish in a better position than you started, even if it is only a small step.”
  15. What is on your bucket list? I want to have been to every continent.” Petite Horse & Rider Ambassador Emily Hankins
  16. What’s the coolest trend you see today? I’m really loving this thick eyebrow trend, it is definitely making my life easier!”
  17. Your favourite quote? “Hakuna matata … it means no worries for the rest of your days.”
  18. If you were an animal what would you be? Definitely a cat, I could happily sleep all day!”
  19. In another life, you’re pretty sure you were…Haha a cat as well!”

Petite Horse & Rider Ambassador Amy MatthewsAmy riding Freckles

Amy is one of our Junior Ambassadors, located on the NSW North Coast. Amy was recently selected to travel to China to represent Pony Club Australia, so before we get into her product review, here is our mini interview with Amy about her trip...

Sarah: "So I'm here with Amy at Wingham ODE, in the PHR trade stand, recording this on my phone. It's great that you're competing here this weekend, it's given us the chance to have a chat about this exciting opportunity of yours! So firstly, congratulations!"

Amy: "Yeah thank you, and it's good to catch up."

Sarah: "Well, let's get some details. Where are you off to exactly?"

Amy: "I'm going to Ninjang, China."

Sarah: "And when are you going?"

Amy: "The 23rd of this month, May, until the 4th of June."

Sarah: "So that's a few weeks? Two weeks."

Amy: "Two weeks, yeah."

Sarah: "Awesome. How did it all come about?"

Amy: "So Pony Club Australia posted asking for applications from people 12, 13 and 14 and we just applied for it. As long as you'd been to State for Pony Club before, that was the level you needed to be at. And then you had to write lots of other stuff in too."

Sarah: "So it was a detailed application process?"

Amy: "Yeah, but it's not really about the level of riding you're at, it's more about how much you help around Pony Club and stuff like that."

Sarah: "Ok cool, that's really great. What Pony Club are you attached to?"

Amy: "Coffs Harbour Pony Club."

Sarah: "So what do you know about the trip so far?"

Amy: "We'll be riding horses in China, at their Pony Club, helping to show some of the skills we use in Pony Club here. I think we'll be doing a gymkhana and a little bit of jumping there. I'm not really sure of that much yet."

Sarah: "How are you feeling about going overseas and riding horses you've never seen before?"

Amy: "Um. Excited! I'm not really sure what it's going to be like but it's really exciting."

Sarah: "It sure is. Do you know anyone else that's going?"

Amy: "No, they're from all over. There's one from each state, I think two from NSW. But I don't know any of them."

Sarah: "Then it's also an opportunity to make some new friends."

Amy: "Yeah it is."

Sarah: "Well congratulations Amy! Thanks for meeting us for this quick chat, we wish you all the best over there. Have fun, and hopefully we can catch up again once you're home to hear all about it!"

Amy: "Yeah, thank you that sounds great."
